Plastic surgeons are qualified medical doctors whose expertise lies in an area of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Within the field of plastic surgery there are a vast number of procedures in which a plastic surgeon, and consequently, a plastic surgery expert witness, will specialise during the course of their career. Whilst plastic surgery will involve procedures for cosmetic enhancements such as breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and body-sculpting, an enormous part of the discipline will see a plastic surgeon lead surgeries for burns repairs, scar revisions, cleft palate, congenital defect repair, hand surgery, and the repair and reconstruction of extremities defects, and emergency reconstructions for trauma victims.
As in any surgical procedure there are a number of risks which can materialise during or after the surgery has been done. In these situations, the possibility of a court case is likely and the appointment of a plastic surgery expert witness is often necessary.
There are a great number of cases for which a plastic surgery expert witness would be called upon by a solicitor. The field of plastic surgery is so vast and complex, ranging from life-saving procedures, to optional enhancements and at any stage problems can arise. From pre-surgery care, in the surgery itself, during the immediate post-surgical care and even years after the initial surgery was carried out, situations may occur that result in a court case and the instruction of a plastic surgery expert witness. Examples of frequent cases for which a plastic surgery expert witness may be required include: medical malpractice, patient negligence, failure to fully explain the procedure and its risks to a patient prior to surgery, and adverse reactions to surgery.
Finding the best-suited expert witness for your case is essential. With an enormous scope of surgical specialities within plastics alone, a solicitor will need to ensure that their appointed plastic surgery expert witness has the necessary expertise in the specific type of surgery to which the case pertains. In doing so, the plastic surgery expert witness is able to carry out accurate and in-depth assessments of the existing evidence and the patient. Since their knowledge and experience is so extensive, they may uncover significant and decisive information that may otherwise have been missed by the solicitor.
Once the assessments have been carried out, the plastic surgery expert witness will be required to write their methods and conclusions into a detailed and accessible expert witness report. This report can be used directly by the solicitor to help build their case and shared with the court as further strengthening evidence.
